tumblr_memxxuMeEV1rhqlpao1_500

After an exciting and fulfilling 2013, I am looking forward to an even bigger and crazier 2014!  I ended the year and am starting the year Lizzie style.  I spent all day yesterday and will be spending today working on the second draft of a play I wrote. I’m looking forward to many more projects like this in 2014, including finishing scripts!

So… let’s get this party started and with some amazing events!
